Anti-Gas Skull

Clare Twomey of North Lismore, Australia is an artist who has been using the skull as inspiration for a long time. At the moment she's part of a protest group fighting Coal Seam Gas mining. They're currently using this image on badges, later she'll finish it as a coat of arms for t-shirts and jackets.

The 'Knitting Nannas Against Gas' "peacefully and productively protest against the destruction of our land and water by exploration and mining of Coal Seam Gas and other nonrenewable energy."  Knitting with a cause and creative revolution.  Who knew that yarn could carry such weight?  Thanks for sharing, Clare!
